Hello, my practice is composed of psychotherapy with adults and couples experiencing depression, anxiety and or interpersonal difficulties. I feel uniquely equipped to work with highly creative silicon valley engineers, bi-cultural immigrant families and south Asian families. My experience as an engineer and a corporate leader in the Silicon Valley tech industry for 15 years is a great asset. My approach is extremely pragmatic and I focus on what is causing you distress in your daily life. I focus on building insight about the problematic behaviors that may be driven by unconscious processes to resolve long term issues.

If you are reading this something is not working for you, you may feel baffled as to why the same patterns of interpersonal problems are happening again and some aspect of your life is disappointing or dissatisfying.. Therapy helps you to be curious, compassionate, and honest with yourself.

Embracing the complexity of your mind and emotions expands your choices for how to live your life. I welcome the opportunity to talk to you, to see if I might be someone who could be of help to you on your journey of self discovery, healing and personal growth.
